Paul Ryan Gives Candy to Unemployed Workers at Labor Day Parade

Share with your friends


You know, I’m starting to second guess Mitt Romney’s VP pick, Paul Ryan. All this time I thought he was a cold and heartless politician much like the guy at the top of the Republican presidential ticket. Judging by his much talked-about budget proposal, with 60% of its cuts targeting the most vulnerable among us, it’s easy to develop the idea that Paul Ryan is a modern-day Ebenezer Scrooge. And then the guy decides to attend a local Labor Day parade in Janesville, Wisconsin and you find out that everything you’ve thought about him up to this point is wrong. Yep, the same Janesville, Wisconsin where a GM plant closed under George W. Bush was blamed on Pres. Obama by Ryan, but I won’t hold that against him.

Yep, I now have a different view of Mr. Ryan. His actions at the parade proves him to be very different than perceived. Paul Ryan may have told a few lies here and there, but passing out candy to unemployed workers, just shows that he is a compassionate and generous human being. There’s only one problem though; this parade was not yesterday, it was last year. Yet and still, him being the Labor Day version of the Easter Bunny should be commended; yep, many folks can’t afford candy. Call it a longshot, but maybe Romney can learn a thing or two from this. Hardly likely, but a man can dream, no?

    Hey RiPPa! I’ve always worried about this Ryan choice. Personally, I always thought he was pretty scary. His recent actions and lies continue to support my original impression of him. When you get a chance, check out my new spot For All Intents and Purposes. Caught an “interview with Ryan” that might spark your interest. :+). Would be “Very Much Obliged”.

      Thanks for sharing that link! The more I think about it, I think Romney picked Ryan to not only add credence to his supposed Conservatism. But also to shift focus from him and his invisible tax returns.
